party chez peas and ant

So for the first time in 7 years I don't have plans for tonight. (I'm not a complete loser just yet, I say hastily, as I was invited to some Sandton-push-up-bra-rah rah-drink-Jagerbombs-and-score-people-with-the-same-names-then-swap-business-cards-and-pass-out-on-Rivonia-Road event, but declined - God, Fridays are so predictable).

This alone scares me: I actually physically turned down a perfectly and potentially fantastic man-groping evening on a Friday night.

How depressed am I?

Being an agoraphobic recluse, however, doesn't necessarily mean you have to be incessantly boring. I'll buy a cat and watch infomercials when I've run out of energy - this isn't the problem. I'm hiding away from men. That's what I'm doing. They are dangerous, and chances are I'll see one of the three bastards that have made me the whiny bitch I am today.

So. I went and bought two bottles of cheap wine and a new supersonic microphone. And a cake. ("Fuck it. I'm buying a cake.") I may be staying in, but I'm not going to be quiet about it.

The microphone is enormous: with three sound settings, an echo feature, a detachable cord, and something called a "decibel equaliser." Ant and I plan to get hopelessly drunk, roll around on the carpet in our winter doondies, strangle a wild cat over the supersonic microphone, and possibly chunder when it's all over. Perhaps, once adequately and properly blotto, we'll go somewhere. But for now, I just hope my neighbours are going out for the evening. Because it's going to be nasty. And an eviction notice looms like the bird 'flu in China.

Tomorrow I'm going as a corporate date with a friend of mine. Lucky bugger.

Nice Fly!

Don't worry about the cats. I used to own a guinea pig. It's all relative china. :)

I am temporarily partnerless tonight and dammit, your plans sound way more fun than Mine! I have to bluddy work! once thats over thou, might go catch the Diesel Whores and Rokkeloos at the Bohemian down Richmond way...

Peas on Toast said...

Daytripper - I'm sorry mate :(. I dig the Bo. Maybe, if we can still see and stand, we'll head on down that way too.

Its Fucking cold. I am not surprised you want to stay inside with your own wine.

That's my plan too, but I am going to a friend's book launch. She is launching a book - A Users Guide To A Woman's Body. Go check it out. I may or may not have been one of the people interviewed in it...depends whose reading & what they think of it. (Nothing like punting a friend's achievement on anonymous sites!)

Peas on Toast said...

Champs, I'll definitely check it out! Can I find it at Exclusive?

Phil said...

Enjoy Peas.....I am flying back from PE this evening....and god knows what thereafter.....

Might just curl up with the mad dogs and a bottle or two of champers for fun.

Peas on Toast said...

Thanks Phil!

We'll be thinking of you!
And serenade you from Illovo. You may even hear us. ;)

Champagne Heathen said...

I think so, but I'll ask her tonight and then probably punt it on my blog.

It was the most stolen book at the Cape Book Fair! Quite an achievement!!

Phil said...

Gee.
A thought.
AND a serenade.

I AM styling.

Enjoy yourself and most of all stay well......your ravings are fun to read and comment on and I doubt you are 1/2 as bad as you sometimes seem to think you are.

Peas on Toast said...

Phil - thanks sweetheart. Hopefully this little cynical, angry, whiny phase will change as soon as I sort the shit in my head out. x

Peas,
You 'agoraphobic'? Noooo.

Your Friday nights sound better than mine. I still have to get up on Sat at 6 AM down here(OK, maybe 7).

Still I'm waiting to see the 'I make my own chaos' back in action.

Hi Anon!

I'll be out and about this coming weekend, after I've decided to stop feeling sorry for myself.

So, like, who the hell are you? ;)
